I don't know what "kind of" means in your neck o' the woods, but I'd say this is definitely a con report. And a good one. Glad you had a good time - it sounds like it was a very good con all around.

Thanks!

It was a good con.

Oh, another thing I meant to comment on was the hotel. There were clearly some issues with the hotel reservation system (like there always are).. On Sunday when I got my checkout thing slipped under my door, it had the wrong rate on it. I went down to the consuite to grab a bagel and double-check what the group room rate was, and when I brought it up someone else responded that it was one thing if you had reserved a room before the block closed and another if you hadn't made that deadline and it turned out that wasn't true - Greg had negotiated for the room rate to be available through to the end of the con, but people who called later to reserve a room didn't get that message. Sound familiar?

Also, the program indicated that Greg had negotiated a later checkout (from 1 pm to 2 pm) For Minicon members, but the hotel staff was oblivious of this on Friday. On Sunday I negotiated a 4 pm checkout for myself (I was taking the shuttle to the airport at 5) but anyone not the manager was really adamant about the 1 pm checkout being non-negotiable. "Checkin is at 3!" they told me...

The final disappointment was that there wasn't a 5 pm shuttle to the airport on Sunday even though there was one listed on their schedule, but the 5:30 shuttle got me there in plenty of time. For all that it was a holiday weekend, security was moving pretty quickly at the aiport and I didn't have any bags to check.

Hotels. Watcha gonna do?

"though there were moments when I missed ConFusion's traditional morningtime hard boiled eggs"

How long has Confusion had morningtime hard boiled eggs?

in the green room? As long as I've been going there, possibly excluding the first year, I don't know; I wasn't a panelist.
